Brett Favre Couldn't Stay Away From the Fries at Duckfat

A pair of Instagram posts (that were later deleted) appeared to show Brett Favre dining at one of Portland's popular tourist dining spots, Duckfat.

Was Brett Favre Really in Maine?

Favre had stayed silent on his social media channels until Tuesday, when he announced that he had filmed an episode of 'Tucker Carlson Today' with Tucker Carlson.

For those adverse to political talk, Favre's appearance on the Tucker Carlson show centered around his NFL career and what he believed to be his most memorable moments during his playing days.

Let’s kick off the countdown with the folks who earned their nickname by buying boxes of used team jerseys.
